1. The Asyut Treasure is the name of an important Byzantine hoard of jewellery found near the city of Asyut, central Egypt. Discovered in mysterious circumstances in the early twentieth century, the treasure is now divided between the Kunstgewerbemuseum in Berlin, the British Museum in London and the Metropolitan Museum in New York City.

    I love how extra the Byzantines were.

  4. Its beautiful.

  5. Why every incredible piece art around the world end up in British museum 🤣

  6. My plan is:

    – Become rich
    – Acquire ancient jewelry
    – Acquire throphy wife (wives?)
    – Adorn trophy wife (wives?) in ancient jewelry

  7. How small would a person need to be to wear this? I know people were typically generally smaller in the past, and this artifact seems like it would be a good measure of stature for that time.

  8. Wait, I dont get how it is wear at all, specially the around the hip part

  9. What happened to the other large pieces of Byzantine jewelry?

  10. If the British Museum upsets you, just unsub now and save yourself a lot of stress.

  11. It being in the British Museum is a surprise…..

  12. The Brits and their thievery know no bounds. Looted almost every country in the world.

  13. Where else

  14. Shouldn’t this be in the Museum of Cairo?

  15. Is there any artifact that is not in The British museum?

  16. I was waiting for the ‘it’s in Britain now’ part.

    Can we hire some master thief’s to liberate these? Calling the pink panthers..
